'You cannot share your own computer.' when trying to connect to 'vnc://localhost:[lport]' afterwards. I understand that Apple probably did this to prevent naive users from confusing themselves by connecting to their own systems. However, it's a pain for those who need to connect to localhost for ssh-tunneling. Here's a temporary way to eliminate this restriction:
1 - From the terminal:
defaults write skipLocalAddressCheck -boolean YES
2 - create the ssh tunnel
ssh -L 5900:localhost:5900 ip address

vlc airfoil audio delay streaming
set the audio delay in vlc to -2100 so the video stays in sync with airplay audio
Use VLC instead (i.e. choose VLC as the app whose sound AirFoil should capture). Within VLC, use F and G keys to adjust the delay/advance of sound. Usually, an advance (F-key) of -2100 ms is enough. Works great!
open the advanced preferences in VLC and enter the value in Audio desynchronization compensation.

Alternatively, on the Windows command line, use the following:
net use x: \\vboxsvr\sharename
While vboxsvr is a fixed name (note that vboxsrv would also work), replace “x:“ with the drive letter that you want to use for the share, and sharename with the share name specified with VBoxManage.
